" So many of us come to therapy because we are hurting. Whether this hurt manifests as relationship issues, addiction, anxiety, depression, or stress about world events, I love helping people discover their inner strengths by healing the parts inside that hurt. Wounds from the past, coupled with internal conflict and judgements about self and others stifle one's ability to grow and change. By compassionately healing these wounds and releasing judgments we quite naturally feel more whole, connected, and joyful! In this space we are free to create the life we want. "
